Smoke & Mirrors’ curated list of highlights from the F/W ’10 collections in stores soon

Now is the perfect time to roll out my selections for best Fall/Winter 2010 RTW collections because who really cares about Resort anyway? Summer just fucking started. Slow yo roll.

10. Marios Schwab / Fall 2010 / London Fashion Week
Schwab examines his Austrian heritage with a little yodel-ay-ee-oooo.

9. Burberry Prorsum / Fall 2010 / London Fashion Week
You gotta love human teddy bears. Plushy love.

Balmain / Fall 2010 / Paris Fashion Week
Stop hatin’ on Decarnin. This Prince-fused collection is like a dream come true for me. The only problem is I’d have to find it at a Ross For Less to afford it.

Haider Ackermann / Fall 2010 / Paris Fashion Week
Word on the street is Janet‘s been shopping Haider‘s latest for herself and backup dancers. World tour costumes, perhaps? I could totally see it.

6. Neil Barrett / Fall 2010 / London Fashion Week
Britain’s answer to Alexander Wang gets his girl spot on – and by the looks of her gloves, bitch came to fight.

5. The Row / Fall 2010 / New York Fashion Week
The Olsens grew up for their first NYFW showing ever, creating one of the more unique takes on American minimalism post-Calvin Klein.

4. Emilio Pucci / Fall 2010 / Milan Fashion Week
Peter Dundas’ latest silhouette is funky, flared, and fringed. Pucci’s never looked so perfect.

3. Gareth Pugh / Fall 2010 / London Fashion Week
The gothic avant-guardian only gets better with time. Pugh‘s neoprene-backed leather jackets are arguably the season’s most unsung hero.

2. Balenciaga / Fall 2010 / Paris Fashion Week
Call it ‘retro-futura’: the melding of new-age materials with yesteryear’s aesthetics. Think peculiar color pairings, 50’s kitchenware/home good motifs and 60’s Pan Am graphics done in techno fabrics. Count on Ghesquiere to push us forward by referencing the past.

1. Dries Van Noten / Fall 2010 / Paris Fashion Week
Dries provides the most pristine print and color pairings of his career. Sophistafunk, ladies and gentlemen.

  1. loves it!

  2. Emilio Pucci is a God. Yah, I said it, call me blasphemous if you must. Here’s to hoping they’ll have a version like that at Ross For Less!

  3. Almost number for number the same lineup I would have chose…. Though, my number 10 would have been christopher kane (hype aside, I have advocated embroidery and quilting for years…). And, I think every time I post on here, I mention that you’re my favorite: You’re my fav!
